## exponential day

 Hi, Please, how can I determine parameters from exponential equation Example one:  y = a*exp(-b*x);  how do I determine �a� and �b�, as well as R-square from data sets. And also fitting y = a*exp(-b*x) into the data sets Assuming data sets A = (0,2,4,6,8,10) B = (1,0.8,0.6,0.4,0.2,0.1) Thanks Francis Sent from Mail for Windows 10         [[alternative HTML version deleted]] ______________________________________________ [hidden email] mailing list -- To UNSUBSCRIBE and more, see https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-helpPLEASE do read the posting guide http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.htmland provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.

For non-linear least squares, look at ?nlm, ?nls or (if you want to roll your own) ?optim For max likelihood, maybe nlme in the nlme package. For other ideas, look up 'non-linear fitting with R' on any search engine, or check the R Task Views S Ellison ******************************************************************* This email and any attachments are confidential.

 Thanks Ellison, I will try it.
